Learn about the most common species growing in your garden, along the green belts and in parks and reserves. Find out how they have been used for food, craft and natural remedies. Discover ways to safely harvest from the urban 'wild' and enrich your diet with vitamins and minerals.
To some plantain, dandelion, chickweed and sow-thistle are a nuisance, to others they are a delicious salad and a seasonal treat. Participants will be issued with a complementary booklet detailing the most common species.
This is an informative workshop designed to empower people with identification recognising skills. Participants will receive material on the day and follow up links so to progress with their own research. The knowledge is widespread and old and this learning experience will empower participants by giving the possibility to meet, touch, smell and even taste the plants. Always eat in small amounts as a start.
Typical plants that we will learn at this time of the year are: dandelions, flatweed, farmers friend, wood sorrel, fleabane, rambling dock, mallow, iron weed, lomandra, purslane and more.
This is a family and pet friendly stroll in the park. Dress for the weather and bring camera and notebook if you wish to retain the information.
